2008 Steelers 33 at Patriots 10

After a somewhat shaky, mistake-filled first half ends in a 10-10 tie on a cold, windy and rainy night in Foxboro, the Steeler defense opens up a can of second-half whoop-@$$ on New England, forcing 5 turnovers (2 INTs and 3 fumbles), nailing Matt Cassell for 4 of their 5 sacks and holding the Patriots to a paltry 81 yds of offense. Meanwhile, the Steelers (in spite of multiple drops by their WRs) score 23 points to turn the game into a runaway. For those of you who enjoy seeing DB's light up WR's, there's a great moment at the 97:48 mark when Ryan Clark introduces himself to Wes Welker... definitely worth seeing and hearing. Also includes an awesome (yet embarrassing) 89-yd INT return by Lawrence Timmons in which he runs out of gas at the 1-yd line. Gary Davis plunges into the end zone 2 plays later to score Pittsburgh's 30th unanswered point.
